Shankar, the alleged father of the baby has been charged with abetment of an offense.
Currently, Sankaragomathi is being treated at a local government hospital.
This is the worst human torture ever, how can you treat someone like that.
She must be jailed for life since she didn’t see the need to at least send the baby to an orphanage.
There are so many women looking for children she could have just given it to one.
She and her son must be jailed for life coupled with hard labor.
